Bombshells, a clothing, accessories and gift boutique in the Canyon Lake Towne Center, has been named Favorite California Boutique by the 2017 Global Boutique Awards. Bombshells competed with 4,000 other boutiques and is the only California boutique to make the finals in two categories.
The Global Boutique Awards celebrates boutiques and specialty stores, whether online, mobile or brick and mortar, who are the lifeblood of cities of all sizes around the world.
The mission of The Global Boutique Awards is to give consumers around the world the opportunity to choose and celebrate their favorite boutiques from all 50 states, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.
The Canyon Lake City Council plans to recognize Bombshells for its achievement at the next city council meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 4.
Bombshells is owned by sisters Stephanie Stout and Johanna Granados. Their parents have been Canyon Lake residents since 1982. Stephanie was born and raised in Canyon Lake.
Upon hearing the news of their win, the sisters couldn’t contain their excitement. “I cried, I was so happy. Canyon Lake has been a part of our family’s lives for 35 years and we are so thankful for the opportunity we have been given,” said Stephanie. Johanna said, “We are so appreciative of our customers for their loyalty and support
To show their appreciate to their customers, the sisters held a Fill-A-Bag sale where customers could fill a bag with almost anything in the store for $65 per bag. “We had a Fill-A-Bag sale last year, but weren’t planning on doing it again,” said Stephanie. “Because we had received so much support and love from our loyal super fans, we wanted to give back.”
Shoppers lined up before the store opened at 8 a.m. “Our customers rolled, twisted and shoved items into the paper bags provided. One Customer filled two bags with more than $700 in merchandise,” said Stephanie. The sale was so successful that it cleared out most of the store’s inventory, forcing the store to close for two days so it could be restocked with new inventory.
Bombshells, located next to Pack, Wrap and Post at 31568 Railroad Canyon Rd., Ste. 100, opened in the Towne Center in October 2014. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. The store is closed on Sundays. For more information about Bombshells, visit bombshellsboutique.com.
